Heading your way on April 26th, Black Mask is proud to presentÂ THERE’S NOTHING THERE, a 4-issue stylish and hallucinatory horror comic book mini-series illustrated by Maria Llovet and written by Patrick Kindlon (We Can Never Go Home, SHIELD: Quake).
THERE’S NOTHING THERE is a smart-sexy thriller that takes place in the upper echelons of celebrity culture where power brokers treat young starlets like cattle, but in this twisted tale the dehumanizing of ingenues by elites is presented through the prism of the paranormal, the paranoid, and those Hollywood Babylon legends of occult celebrity-sacrifices that might just have a few kernels of truth to them. In this era where the powerful brazenly take whatever andÂ whomever they want, THERE’S NOTHING THERE gives us a sharp new heroine who finds out how to play the game without being anyone’s pawn.
Maria and Patrick’s storytelling is brave and provocative while staying nuanced and sophisticated, bringing us slowly into a surreal world that feels all to real.

SYNOPSIS & PREVIEW:
Celebrity-socialite Reno Selleti doesnâ€™t believe in very much beyond Instagram comments, hipster drugs, and the flash of paparazzi cameras, so when a friend invites her to an EYES WIDE SHUT-type party she goes along mostly for the lulz. But the joke doesnâ€™t feel as funny when she realizes itâ€™s an actual occult ritual, and suddenly sheâ€™s seeing thingsâ€¦ horrifying apparitions trying to warn her. â€œRUN.â€
Like Darren Aronofsky remaking DRAG ME TO HELL, Thereâ€™s Nothing There is a stylish & hallucinatory thriller about losing yourself in the bright lights and finding yourself at rock bottom. By new artist Maria Llovet and writer Patrick Kindlon (We Can Never Go Home, S.H.I.E.L.D.: Quake).
